construction

Not only didn't Gord keep accurate accounting while working on this project, it went way over budget (the amount I provided was not the final) all of the subcontractors received none of the money we paid Gord and we were approached by one of them threatening a lien if we didn't at least pay for 1/2 the cost as Gord refused to pay. What was meant to be a quick project for only a couple of weeks stretched on for months and months and in the end Gord didn't finish the project. First warning to everyone if your contractor is requesting all cheques be addressed to them personally and not in the name of the company don't just walk away RUN!

Basement

I have never had a problem with this company. Gord Kilpatrick always came to us with out best interests in mind. He gave us a competitive quote, and kept in touch to make sure we got what we wanted. I don't know where the other problems are coming from, but I would have no problem recommending this company to any of my family or friends. The job was done in the time frame he gave us, and we still get compliments from our guests about how nice our basement is and how livable it is. I give Kilpatrick Construction a perfect rating for their price, service and quality.

addition to my home

In the spring of 2009 we began what was our dream renovation to our home with a contractor who has been operating in the Durham area for several years now. As the project began we saw signs that there could be trouble when there was problems with him obtaining credit from any of the area stores and his workers not getting along with each other. As the project moved forward, he began claiming additional expenses and requesting more cash without providing any receipts or information to back up his claims. The project began to slow down in early fall and came to a complete halt in late fall. We had two choices, keep paying this crook, or find another contractor, which is what Gord suggested,so we did and have had some excellent work completed since then, by very reliable and trustworthy contractors. We basically took over the role of contractor and hired each trade as needed. Early on in the project contacted the town and discussed any of the issues that had been found and made sure that there were no additional surprises. However, looking at the pictures we found on this site from another home owner in the area, it was like looking at our home. We spent every day going behind the work being done and fixing daily mistakes, so by the time Gord took off, we weren't in too bad of shape. The real icing on the cake was when one of his sub contractors came after us and threatened to place a lien on our property. We were able to negotiate terms with this individual, and he has advised us he would be a willing witness should we decide to sue over breach of contract. We since discovered that although Gord received a large portion of the cash for this job (let's just say I'm embarrassed that I was swindled so easily), he hasn't paid any of the sub contractors who did work on our home. From the Excavation to the Electritian to the Brick layer, no one has been paid and Gord is claiming that we have not paid him, which only adds insult to injury, and Gord received more than enough to pay all of the subs and have a profit. This man has no concern in providing any quality work or product and should be avoided at all costs unless you want to enter into a very trying and frustrating arrangement.

DO NOT HIRE KILPATRICK CONSTRUCTION! YOU WILL REGRET IT!
